(Minghui.org) I am a young Falun Dafa practitioner born in the 1990s to a family of farmers in Northeastern China.

When I first read information defaming Falun Dafa in school textbooks, like most students, I was misled into thinking it was bad.

I was physically weak from a young age and often suffered from ailments such as flu and fever. During the outbreak of swine flu, I had a high fever that did not subside despite medical treatment. I kept coughing up blood, and for the first time, I believed that I was close to death.

Just as I lost hope, a relative sent us video tapes of the Falun Dafa lectures and exercises, as well as the main book, Zhuan Falun.

My father thought that there must be something good about Dafa, so we decided to give it a try and started to watch the lecture tapes.

I fell asleep as I listened to the tapes, but when I woke up, I felt that I had some energy and began to learn the first set of exercises. My whole body was enveloped by an energy field. I did the exercises three times, and my fever was gone. In just a couple of minutes, I felt much better. It was extraordinary!

The symptoms of the influenza quickly disappeared, and I felt much better than before. I then understood that the things I had read about Falun Dafa in the textbooks were all lies. If not for my personal experience, I would never have believed the amazing health benefits of practicing Falun Dafa.

During my third year in high school, I was caught up with studies and stopped practicing. But I resumed the practice again when I went to university.

Through practicing Falun Dafa, my health improved tremendously. I recalled an accusation fabricated by the Chinese Communist Party, that Falun Dafa forbids one from taking medicine. By following the teachings of Dafa, one does not need to take medicine because one will become fit and healthy through the practice. I have not needed to take any medication in several years. Practicing Falun Dafa has made me healthy and helped me save on medical bills. How wonderful that is!

I have also become a better person through following the principles of Falun Dafa. I used to be petty and critical of others, but after I became a practitioner, I learned to reflect on my own shortcomings.

I try to be sincere, kind and forgiving towards friends and colleagues. As a result, I have made many new friends. A previous colleague said that I was a nice person, but actually I used to be bad-tempered. Falun Dafa turned me into a good person.
